CAST 2014 has ended


The Association for Software Testing is pleased to announce its ninth annual conference, CAST 2014 “The Art and Science of Testing”, to be held in New York, NY, August 11-13. To some, software testing is an outgrowth of engineering, mathematics and physics, while to others, testing is an exploration of psychology, philosophy or sociology. At CAST 2014, conference speakers will share their stories and experiences surrounding software testing, whether bound by rules and laws of science and experimentation, or expressed through creativity, imagination, and artistry.

Join us this summer for our ninth annual conference in downtown New York City at the beautiful Kimmel Center located next to Washington Square Park August 11-13, as we explore the art and science of testing.

Scaling up with Embedded Testing

Whenever someone asks me what I do for a living, I tell them that my job is to take software from idea to release as efficiently as possible. I provide this service for multiple teams as a time, without writing a single test case. But in my journey to here, it made me question what the role of a tester really is. My conclusion was that testing is not a role - it is an activity. My role therefore is to embed that activity in the software development process, shortening the feedback loop between creation and verification as much as I can. In this talk I will explain what this involves, why it's awesome and what it means for you as a tester, a software developer, a software engineering manager, and for the budding entrepreneur who's thinking of building a startup in the next couple of years.
